|Vu Thi Luu Mai, a deputy of Hanoi, speaks at the working session
Constituents expressed their opinions on October 29 after watching the live televised plenum of the 14th National Assembly during which deputies debated the results of the performance of the State budget estimate for 2018; State budget estimate and allocation plan for 2019 and the mid-term review of the materialisation of the public investment plan and national finance during the 2016-2020 period.
Nguyen Van Chien, a voter in the Red River Delta province of Nam Dinh, said reports presented at the working session reflected the government’s efforts in completing socio-economic targets.
The country’s macro-economy was stabilized, while inflation was controlled, the gross domestic product (GDP) enjoyed high growth, social welfare was ensured, and living standards and income of people were improved, he added.
Chien said major projects carried out over the past time have been seen as “levers” for national economic development and administrative reform.
He, however, voiced his concern over the stagnant progress of many major projects, and suggested identifying the focus of public investment to avoid wastefulness, and cutting administrative procedures.
Suitable policies should be rolled out to support small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), cooperatives and household businesses, and to create favourable conditions for production and business.
Voter Huynh Quang Ta, also in Nam Dinh province, said national target programmes for 2016-2020 have contributed to improving the material and spiritual life of people, especially those in rural, remote, border and island areas.
Deputies have promoted the high sense of responsibility by proposing many solutions to difficulties facing the country and localities as well.
Representatives of ministries and agencies cleared up various issues, offering legislators and voters an insight into national socio-economic situation and creating a foundation for the supervision of the implementation of solutions set forth during the session, he said.
